Migraines are very common and, for many people, they can be debilitating, reducing the quality of life. Some may be so severe that the only option for getting through them is to rest in a dark room. The Functional Medicine approach to treating migraines looks beyond the head to assess the health of the entire body and find the root cause.
In today’s episode, I talk with Dr. Elizabeth Boham and Dr. Todd LePine to explore various ways we can use this approach to eliminate migraines. We discuss healing the gut and dietary changes, and I also speak about how low levels of magnesium have been linked to migraines.
Dr. Elizabeth Boham is a physician and nutritionist who practices Functional Medicine at The UltraWellness Center in Lenox, MA. Through her practice and lecturing, she has helped thousands of people achieve their goals of optimum health and wellness. She witnesses the power of nutrition every day in her practice and is committed to training other physicians to utilize nutrition in healing.
Dr. Todd LePine graduated from Dartmouth Medical School and is board certified in Internal Medicine, specializing in Integrative Functional Medicine. He is an Institute for Functional Medicine certified practitioner. Prior to joining The UltraWellness Center, he worked as a physician at Canyon Ranch in Lenox, MA, for 10 years.
